    Default BATMAN: Gotham Knight (Animated shorts)

    A few years back, as the release of THE MATRIX RELOADED was imminent, a series of anime shorts were released to tie in with the film. Called THE ANIMATRIX, the project comprised of nine shorts that pushed us further into the crazy world created by The Wachowkis.

    I can remember THE ANIMATRIX vividly, particularly seeing FINAL FLIGHT OF THE OSIRIS debuting on late night TV and even on a small screen, it blew me away. I had flirted with anime before but THE ANIMATRIX was what really pushed me head first into the genre.

    Now, a similar trick is being tried with Batman.

    A series of six anime shorts are in the pipeline and will get released under the name BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT prior to THE DARK KNIGHT’s theatrical bow.



    Already confirmed for the project are Hollywood writers Josh Olsen and David Goyer, THE PRESTIGE and THE DARK KNIGHT producer Jordan Goldberg; comic scribes Brian Azzarello and Greg Rucka; along with Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett who were involved in the superb BATMAN, SUPERMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE animated shows.

    The animation will come courtesy of three of Japan’s most popular animation production houses: Production I.G., Madhouse, and Studio 4°C.

    Add to that the news from Twitch that Satoshi Kon (PERFECT BLUE, PAPRIKA) will direct a segment and we’ve got a potential gem on out hands.

    animatrix IS DOPE. i got the DVD. best ones imo were "The Second Renaissance" and "world record"

    the renaissance was crazy- the history of how the machines came up.

    Manga Entertainment are still around. They don't actually make films, they're just a distributor in the west (UK, USA, Oz etc).

    If I buy anime now I get it from an asian bootleg, cos the UK retail dvds are ridiculously priced.
